Buck describes this as a 201 or 301 session — not DID issues 101. From an internal persecutor’s point of view, and speaking primarily to other plural system rebels, Buck discusses resistance to getting along, & why he decided it’s better to go along with and protect the internal team, fight other people, & advocate against external systemic injustice instead. Includes role creativity, adjusting perspective, treating life as an adventure, onboarding and working on co-consciousness and communication, getting some residents unstuck, getting to know (new) residents, letting go of old roles, and taking on new roles.
